Time flies when you’re having fun (or you’re a tooth-fairy)! We can’t believe it’s been a week since the end of the 2016 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth for a swish, sample, and hug! We had an amazing show and are beyond excited for the year to come with new products in development and new connections made!
A major highlight of the show for us was the Environmental Working Group “Skin Deep” presentation where we discussed their new initiative “EWG Verified”. They are testing beauty and body products for toxic ingredients and providing a rating scale for consumers to analyze ingredients and products. Check out their database here and see where the ingredients of your favorite products fall on their scale.

Brami Beans are our top pick from Expo West for healthy snacking. Another product shout out goes to Lily’s Sweets who now has vegan, non-GMO, stevia-sweetened, dark chocolate baking chips. Yay! Now we can make gluten-free, carb-free, sugar-free, chocolate chip cookies. Our favorite booth this year was the uber-creative and natural looking Nature’s Path tree-house, which served up organic treats like their new Qia’a bars.

We also enjoyed chatting with a ton of media, especially our friends at IdeateTV and Dorit of Serenity Spaces. We look forward to sharing more interviews and product reviews with you on our Facebook and media section of our website.
Huge thanks to our bad-ass team and everyone who made this show such a success, especially all of the other exhibitors. It was so energizing to be a part of the world’s largest natural products gathering and we are blown away by the shared passion for people and planet that everyone had! Can’t wait to see what we all create in the next year!
